Arthroscopy (Key-hole Surgery)
Arthroscopic surgery is a procedure in which an arthroscope (Camera) is inserted into a joint through a small nick. The joint cavity is distended with saline fluid and the joint is thoroughly inspected. The magnified images of inside of the joint are transmitted on a screen attached to the camera. We can not only see what is inside the joint, but also treat many joint problems effectively using specialised micro instruments and radiofrequency probes.
The benefits of arthroscopic surgery include smaller incisions, faster healing, minimal pain, faster recovery and less scarring. Majority of arthroscopic procedures are now performed on a day care basis and patient can be discharged home on the same day. If an overnight stay is anticipated then these procedure will be carried out at the hospital by Dr Jayant Arora.
